Volvo to pay $1.5 million in NHTSA fine

Posted on July 10th, 2012 No Comments

Volvo has agreed to pay a multimillion dollar fine issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration after the federal agency says the automaker failed to notify them of safety defects in a timely manner.

Federal law mandates that car manufacturers have five business days to report an impending recall to the NHTSA or fines can be issued. As a result of Volvo’s violation of the law, the agency issued a $1.5 million fine.

Between 2010-2012, seven recalls were issued by the Swedish automaker for defects such as stalling engines, incorrect tire-pressure labeling, and defective airbag deployment that affected more than 32,000 cars.
